The Daily Times of Farmington reports Sharon Singer recently filed a grievance alleging that her removal violated tribal law.

Singer also says she faced harassment, intimidation and a hostile work environment by her supervisor, Department of Diné Education Superintendent of Schools Tommy Lewis Jr.

Singer was fired after a Navajo Nation investigation revealed she engaged in misconduct and misused tribal funds.

Lewis denied Singer's accusations and said the forensic audit showed financial abuse by Singer.
